Sculpture From The Nereids Monument

One of the Three Nereids
Nereid Monument, Xanthos, about 390-380 BC
3 1/2"x 5", pen and ink
This is my final ink sketch while visiting the United Kingdom. Robert and I spent a few days seeing the sights of London. While we were in the British Museum, this ancient life-size sculpture, one of three in a set, captured my attention.  The beautiful movement and flow of the drapery was a stunning sight to behold. I spent the next 30 minutes sketching her. She was the perfect model, never moving and so accommodating.
